I woke up feeling excited, anticipating a new leader, a new direction, a new hope. Oh please please. I jumped out of bed. Oh head rush, got up too fast. To computer, wake up stupid thing! Please! Okay finally. Sitting on my computer chair I type into the address bar. Load load. Come on damn little thing. Load. What's the headline?
no one's won yet.
Important states leaning towards Bush.
Google search: election results
Shit shit shit
Anger clenches up in my stomach
All sites say the same.
Mia's voice: Hello?
Me: Hey. Have you heard? It sounds like it's going for Bush.
I say quietly: fucking shit head.
My heart sinks. Wanting to cry but no tears come.
In the room next to mine: "I don't like that language, sis."
"Shut up! Leave me be!"
"Who won?" my pestering sister asks.
I said: "Don't know yet. Go away!" Not wanting to accept the inevitable.
That feeble hope keeps me going
Me: Hey Mia. Sorry. My sis was being a butt.
Me: lets out a moan of despair How can this be happening? Oh God please help us.
Mia: I know. The whole world is going to hell.
Me: What can we do? This can't be happening. We have to do something. What about the children? What about us?
